Jacob Prasch, from Moriel TV and Moriel Ministries, has been teaching Jesus is the Metatron for some years now. He is responding to the accusation that he is teaching Kabbalah in this video.You will notice, he claims in Isaiah 4 and 5 it says Jesus is the Metatron. You will not find this in the whole book of Isaiah. Someone clarified it for me and said he meant to say Revelation 5:6.These videos are one of the reasons he had to address the accusations that he is teaching Kabbalah.
Other Doctrine IssuesThe Metatron doctrine isn’t the only troubling thing Prasch teaches about. In a quick search through Prasch’s blog, you can see him using the word “Shekinah” several times. The word Shekinah is not found in the Bible and is another false doctrine from Judaism. Don’t get me wrong, I am in complete agreement with learning about a religion before witnessing to the members. But we also cannot agree with their false doctrine or imply it is the same as Biblical Christianity.
A friend commented on Facebook sharing this with me below. I cannot confirm this, but I want to share it because I know she loves and fears God. She is a Messianic Jew and has learned to spot these false teachings very well.Prasch seems to think that we need the knowledge of the Midrash and Jewish thought to rightly understand the Bible. Here are some quotes from this article.
Christians In AgreementWhat is even scarier is how many Christians are agreeing with his Metatron doctrine. A woman, named Linda who says she works at Fellowship Bible Chapel is defending this, as well as Prasch teaching there many times. John Haller is also okay with this teaching from Prasch saying it was only to witness to Jews. You will also notice these videos have a lot of thumbs up on YouTube.A woman shared a conversation with me that she had with the “Be alert! | Moriel Ministries” Facebook page. She confronted them about this issue and messaged me sharing what they said. She gave me permission to use the photos she sent me.
They even defend the Talmud. This is a lot worse than I thought!I also spoke to the owner of the “Be Alert! | Moriel Ministries” Facebook page. Here is a quote from the owner of the Facebook group:
I just need to point out part of her statement; “ALL OF THEM use the texts of those streams of Judaism to prove that Christian beliefs aren’t contradictory” is very wrong. Christianity has ZERO in common with the Jewish doctrine.
What Does The Bible Say?As Christians should know, the Talmud, Kabbalah, Zohar, etc have absolutely nothing in common with the Bible. What does the Bible say about the teachings from those of the circumcision (the Jews) and other deceivers?
Here is what Jesus said about the traditions of the elders:
